Cloud migration your way

Migrating to Google Cloud

Lift and shift

This approach works best if minimal architecture changes are required. Save time and money when you shift infrastructure and apps from on-premises virtual machines to VMs hosted in the cloud.

Application change

Google, as well as our network of partners, works with you to modernize your traditional, on-premises applications. You can re-platform or rearchitect your application as a set of microservices operating on Google Cloud.


Hybrid-friendly by design, Google Cloud can run infrastructure on-premises, while you leverage the security and scalability of the cloud. Plan, build, and manage reliable applications across on-premises data centers, private-hosted servers, or multi-cloud environments.
